Cardiac Claims

If I have a heart problem case


If I have a heart problem case

Establishing if you have claim depends on whether our expert lawyers can show that there was a breach of the duty owed to you by the responsible healthcare staff; that is to say, we have to establish your care fell below the reasonable standard expected.

Examples of breaches of duty would be failure to diagnose or delayed diagnosis; GPs missing vital signs of heart disease or failing to refer their patients for further cardiac investigations; surgeons making avoidable errors or performing unnecessary operations.

If we can establish a breach of duty we then have to demonstrate on ‘the balance of probability' (i.e. there is a greater than 51% chance) that those failures caused you injury and loss that you otherwise would not have suffered.

There are time limits within which you can claim so whatever your circumstances you should contact Access Legal as soon as is practicable. We can then give you free initial advice about whether a claim is possible and establish what additional treatments you may require to help you deal with the future, whatever your prognosis.

Cardiology and cardiovascular claims can be challenging and complex. The first thing to do is to contact an expert law firm like Access Legal which specialises in this sort of work and can advise you if you have a case that has prospects of success.
